30 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



APPENDIX 



[Document No. i.] 
REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON EPWORTH LEAGUES. 

The committee appointed at our last Annual Conference on Epworth 
League interests, have had the matter under consideration, and respect- 
fully submit the following report: 

At a joint meeting of the committees appointed by the North Carolina 
and Western North Carolina Conferences, it was determined to co-oper- 
ate with our Presiding Elders in giving prominence to our Epworth 
League interests at the District Conferences, which effort, we think, 
resulted in good to our work. 

Our effort to seci:re statistics has been only a partial success. There 
have been reported to us 14 Epworth Leagues with about 1,000 members. 

Gratified at what has been done, and believing there are large possi- 
bilities for good in Epworth League work, we recommend the following: 

First. That an Epworth League Standing Committee of four preach- 
ers and three laymen be appointed for a term of four years, to have 
charge of all the interests of our Epworth Leagues, subject to the direc- 
tion of our Annual Conference. 

Second. That as it is important to keep this new branch of our church 
work affiliated with our other departments and properly adjusted to our 
regular machinery, our Presiding Elders be requested to give such promi- 
nence to Epworth League interests as is practicable at their District 
Conferences. 

Third. That Thursday night of our Annual Conference week be 
observed as Epworth League Anniversary, and that this be the order of 
exercises for said night of this Conference. 

Fourth. That, whereas, we believe a State Conference of Epworth 
League workers would strengthen the bonds of unity already existing 
between the two Conferences and would advance the Epworth League 
interests among our young people; and, whereas, our Discipline provides 
for such Conferences, and as the Board of Trustees of Trinity College 
has kindly tendered the use of the college for such purpose, therefore a 
State League Conference be held at Trinity Park, Durham, N. C, during 
the summer of 1895, provided the Western North Carolina Conference 
unite with us in this enterprise, and that our Epworth League Commit- 
tee co-operate with a similar committee appointed by the Western North 
Carolina Conference to arrange for holding said State League Conference. 

Fifth. That, believing a Summer School, wherein the various inter- 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 3 1 

■ests of our church could be represented, would also unify and strengthen 
the bonds of our common Methodism in the State, and as the Board of 
Trustees of Trinity College has tendered the use of college buildings and 
park for this purpose also, therefore this Conference appoint a commit- 
tee consisting of Revs. J. C. Kilgo, N. M. Watson and T. N. Ivey, ,who 
shall confer with a like committee appointed by the Western North 
Carolina Conference, and who shall take such steps as they may judge 
expedient towards establishing such Summer School. 

Sixth. That, whereas, we believe our best religious work to be that 
loyalh' done within the jurisdiction of our own church; and, whereas, 
several interdenominational and uon-denoininational organizations have 
sprung up in our midst having a tendency to draw our young people 
from regular church work; therefore, we disapprove the organization 
among our members of any such societies as are antagonistic to our 
Epworth Leagues, and that our pastors organize Epworth Leagues in 
their charges as far as practicable. 

Seventh. That regretting so few of our Leagues have responded to the 
assessment of lo cents per member made by the General Epworth League 
Board for necessary expenses, we urge all our delinquent Leagues to pay 
this assessment at their earliest opportunity. 

Eighth. That we regret the unfortunate utterances of the Editor of 
the Epworth Era, and decline to recommend said paper to the patronage 
of our people so long as its columns are open to such utterances as tend 
to destroy the spirit of loyalty in our young people; aud deprecate any 
literature calculated to lead them away from the constituted authorities 
of our church; and recommend to all our pastors and leading League 
workers vigilant watchfulness over the class of literature placed in the 
hands of the League. 

Ninth. That we heartily endorse the International League Confer- 
ence to be held at Chattanooga, Tennessee, in June, 1895. 
Respectfully, 

F. A. Bishop, 
L. L. Nash, 
W. H. Branson, 
J. B. Hurlev.

[Document No. 5.] 
REPORT OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. 

The Board of Education, after hearing and investigating closely all the 
reports from our educational institutions, are glad to report that we find 
them in such excellent and prosperous condition, and are rejoiced to 
know that, notwithstanding our country is passing through one of the 
greatest financial crises known in its history, our people have not lagged 
in interest respecting our schools. 

We rejoice in the fact that Methodism is committed to the great work 
of the education of her children, and we are persuaded that she is pro- 
foundly impressed with the conviction that she cannot entrust this sacred 
work to alien hands without imperiling her doctrines, institutions and 
future history. 

We feel devoutly thankful for the wonderful progress already made 
and for the splendid future now dawning upon our educational work. 

TRINITY COI.LEGE. 

Trinity College has had a profitable and prosperous year. In its new 
and elegant home, and with increased capacity for usefulness, it is equaj 
to any of like grade in the land. 

It has a large and harmonious Faculty equal in talent to any engaged 
in educational work, and with a loyal and generous church behind it 
the college looks forward to an era of unsurpassed prosperity and use- 
fulness. 

We congratulate the Trustees upon their wisdom in electing Rev. J. C. 
Kilgo to the Presidency of Trinity College. He is a young man, in touch 
with the thought and progressive spirit of the age, and richly endowed 
with all those elements of mind and heart that peculiarly fit him for the 
great work to which the church has called him. Under his wise leader- 
ship, backed by his great enthusiasm and heroic faith in God and man, 

3 



34 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

we may confidently expect him to develop the highest possibilities of 
the institution over which he presides, the past history of which we are 
not ashamed. 

The Board recommends the following: 

1. That an assessment of |5,ooo be made by the Conference to help 
run the current expenses of the College — and that it be distributed as 
follows: 

Raleigh District $ 605 00 

Durham District 53S 00 

Fayetteville District 463 00 

Rockingham District 513 00 

Wilmington District . 546 00 

Newbern District 604 00 

Washington District 595 00 

Warrenton District 570 00 

Elizabeth Citj' District 566 00 

$5,000 CO 

2. That an assessment of JJ323.00 for the General Board, as provided 
under paragraph 411, be added to the above f 5, 000, to be prorated with it. 

3. That the Conference request the Bishop to appoint Rev. John C. 
Kilgo President of, and Olin Boggess Professor in Trinity College. 

GREENSBORO FEMALE COLLEGE. 

It is with profound sorrow that the Board is called upon to chronicle 
the sad death of Rev. F. L. Reid, D.D., late President of this noble insti- 
tution, who, only a few months ago, in his young and vigorous man- 
hood, was called upon to preside over its destinies. But God makes no 
mistakes, for while He has called His servant from labor to rest, His 
mantle has fallen on one whom we believe is worthy and able to wear it. 
Prof. Dred Peacock comes to the presidency of this institution, having 
consecrated the strength and energy of his richly endowed young life 
to the one work of the education of the daughters of our homes. He has 
associated with him a full and competent Faculty, who share the deep 
interest which he manifests in the intellectual and spiritual welfare of the 
pupils committed to his care. 

LITTLETON FEMALE COLLEGE. 

We are rejoiced to report that Littleton Female College, in which the 
Conference owns a controlling interest, continues in a prosperous and 
growing condition. We believe that no school of like grade is doing 
more honest and thorough work, and is in every way worthy of the con- 
fideuce and patronage of our people. 

We recommend that the Rev. J. M. Rhodes be appointed its President. 



JOURNAL OF TROCKEDINGS. 35 

LOUISHURG FEMALE COLLEGE. 

We are glad to report that this old aud time-honored institution has 
resumed work under more favorable conditions and with better facilities 
and equipments, and is now in the midst of a very prosperous year. 

We heartily endorse this institution of learning and recommend that 
Rev. J. A. Green be appointed President. 

TRINITY HIGH SCHOOL. 

This is an institution of high grade, and is under the management ot 
the Trustees of Trinity College, and, like the College, is the property of 
both the North Carolina and the Western North Carolina Conferences. 

We are rejoiced to note its continued prosperity, and heartily recom- 
mend it to the patronage of our people. 

The action of the last General Conference in constituting a Board of 
Education of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, and the election 
of a Secretary of Education, we regard as eminently wise. In order to 
complete the organization in our own Conference, and to facilitate the 
work in behalf of this important interest of the church, j'our Board 
reconmiends the adoption of the following: 

1. This Conference shall elect a Conference Secretary of Education, 
to serve without salary, to whom the several District Boards of Educa- 
tion hereinafter provided for shall report immediately upon their 
organization. It shall be the duty of the Conference Secretary of Edu- 
cation to see that the District Boards be furnished with catalogues of all 
our institutions and with all information necessary to the prosecution 
of the work of the District Boards, and to keep a roster of teachers 
desiring situations, and to put them in correspondence with the Boards 
applying for teachers. 

2. This Conference shall also elect a Conference Treasurer of Educa- 
tion, to whom all moneys belonging to the Conference Board of Educa- 
tion shall be paid, and who shall pay out of the said funds the expenses 
of the Secretary of the Board for stationery, printing, etc., aud the trav- 
eling expenses of members of the District Boards when in the discharge 
of their duties as members of the Board, aud shall present an itemized 
statement of all moneys received and disbursed by him to the Annual 
Conference Board of Education, with vouchers therefor. 

II. DISTRICT BOARDS OF EDUCATION. 

Ever}' District Conference shall elect, for a term of two years, four 
laymen, and the Presiding Elder shall appoint three preachers from his 
District, as a District Board of Education. The Presiding Elder shall 
be ex officio a member of the Board, and he shall have power to fill any 
vacancies occurring in the Board in the interim of District Conferences. 



36 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

He shall call a meeting of the Board for his District in the month of 
April, which shall effect its own organization, and report the same to 
the Conference Secretary of Education, and lay such plaus for their 
■work in the District as in their judgment are advisable. The four lay- 
men upon this Board shall be ex officio members of the District Con- 
ference. It shall be the duty of the District Boards of Education: 

1. To secure through the Local Boards of Education hereinafter pro- 
vided for such facts concerning the number of children and young peo- 
ple of our own church of school age and the facilities for education 
within their bounds as shall enable the church to know the needs of our 
people; to secure from the Secretary the names of such teachers as desire 
situations, and to do all in their power to supply the local needs within 
the bounds of their several districts; to procure the names and addresses 
of such young people as may be induced to attend our academies and 
colleges and to report them to the Faculties; personally to aid the agents 
of our schools in whatever way possible when canvassing within their 
bounds; and to report in writing to the District Conference the work of 
the Board for the year, together with the statistics before mentioned. 

2. No student for our ministry shall be admitted to our academies or 
colleges as a beneficiary student who has not beeu recommended to the 
District Board by the Local Board of the charge in which he holds his 
membership, and by the District Board to the Faculty of the institution 
which he proposes to enter. When such application is made and 
approved, the District Boards shall diligently enquire what amount of 
aid is absolutely necessary for such applicant to meet expenses other 
than tuition, and shall inform the Local Boards of the amounts expected 
of them; and the Local Boards shall raise the amounts in such way as 
they shall deem best; and the said amounts, when raised, shall be for- 
warded to the Treasurer of the Conference Board of Education, with 
information for whom it is to be used. 

3. No school shall be recommended to the patronage of our people 
by the District Conferences that has not secured the approval of the Dis- 
trict Board of Education. 

III. LOC.\I, BOARDS. 

In each pastoral charge there shall be a Local Board of Education, 
consisting of three members, to be elected by the Quarterly Conference 
upon nomination of the preacher in charge. It shall be the duty of the 
Local Boards: 

1. To co-operate with the pastor and Sunday School Superintendent 
in arranging and executing a programme for Children's Daj-. 

2. To secure, as far as possible, the statistics called for by the District 
Board of Education. 

3. To aid the representatives of our educational institutions in the 
canvass of the charge. 



JOURNAL OK PROCEEDINGS. 2)7 

4. To recommend to the District Board of Education such persons as 
they approve as beneficiary candidates for the ministry, and to raise the 
amount laid upon the charge by the District Board under section 2. 

5. To report in writing to the District Board of Education the statis- 
tics gathered by them of the educational work within the pastoral 
charges, together with the number of students attending our institutions 
of learning from their charges. 

In order to carry this organization into effect at once, we recommend 
that the Presiding Elders be requested now to name four laymen in each 
of their several districts, to be elected by this Conference, to act until 
the meeting of the District Conference, and that the Presiding Elders to 
be appointed add to these, immediately after the appointments are made, 
the clerical members necessary to complete the Board. 

In order further to forward the work of education within our Confer- 
ence, we recommend that the Annual Conference Board of Education 
be elected to serve for four years. R. J. Moorman, Chainnan. 

J. B. Hurley, Secretary.

MEMOIR OF REV. S. D. ADAMS. 

Rev. Shockley D. Adams, sou of William and Elizabeth Gibson 
Adams, was born in Marlboro County, South Carolina, July 23, 1829. 
He was converted November 3, 1842, at Pine Grove, Bennettsville 
Circuit, South Carolina Conference, and joined the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church the same day — his father joining with him. He was 
appointed class leader June 24, 1846, licensed to exhort December i, 
1849, and licensed to preach October 26, 1850 — Rev. Wm. Barrin- 
ger, P. E. Received on trial in the N. C. Conference at Louisburg, 
October, 1852; ordained deacon by Bishop G. F. Pierce at Pittsboro, 
November 5, 1854, and ordained elder by Bishop Early at Greens- 
boro, November 16, 1856. He served the following fields of labor: 

1852, Bladen Circuit, as junior preacher with Rev. J. B. Martin, 
P. C. 

1853, Deep River Circuit. 
iS54-'55, Carthage Circuit. 
1856, Mocksville Circuit. 
i857-'58, Davidson Circuit. 
iS59-'6o, Rockingham Circuit. 
i86i-'62. Haw River Circuit. 
i863-'64, Carthage Circuit. 
i865-'66, Rockingham Circuit. 

i867-'7o, inclusive, P. E. Fayetteville District. 

i87i-'73, inclusive, Washington District. 

i874-'75, Fayetteville District. 

i876-'78, inclusive, Greensboro Station. 

i879-'8o, Hillsboro District. 

i88i-'84, inclusive, Raleigh District. 

i885-'88, inclusive, again on Fayetteville District. 

iSSg-'go, Greensboro District. 

1S91, and until his death in 1894, on Warrenton District. 

Thus fourteen years on circuits, three years on stations, and 
twenty-five years on districts, give an unbroken service to the min- 
istry of the church of forty-two years. 

He was not well for two weeks before his death, and somewhat 
hindered in his work, but not confined to his bed all of any one day. 
He died of heart failure at Brother Whitfield's, at Weldon, in the room 
which he had called his home on his District for three years past. 
As he approached the end he made the following beautiful utter- 
ances. When informed by Brother Troy that he was passing awaj', 
he said, "Tell Mary all is well, all is well!" To Brother Troy he 



42 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



said, "Meet me in heaven!" After awhile Bro. X. inquired, "Is 
Jesus with j-ou ?" He replied, "O yes; glory! glory!" Bro. Troy 
asked, " Have you any message for the brethren of the Conference?" 
His response was, " All is well, all is well!" He then added, "Poor 
Mary, it will almost break her heart!" and in five minutes he was 
asleep in Jesus. 

He died at his post in Weldon, February 12th, 1894. Brothers 
Troy and Harrison held a short service with his friends at Brother 
Whitfield's before removing the body for its trip to its last resting 
place. The friends at Weldon served him with loving kindness. 

Since the year 1S74 he has had a home in Carthage, N. C, where 
his beautiful life had been singularly helpful to all the interests of 
the [community. Here we .buried ^him February 14th, 1894. The 
whole town was moved by one common sorrow at his death. Every 
place of business was closed, and the great throng which gathered 
and shared with tears in the funeral service declared how they loved 
him. Eleven of his brethren in the ministry from different parts of 
the Conference took part in the services. 

He was in the best sense a great man. All the elements of strength 
were so blended in him as to produce a well-balanced character. 
Large common sense, a sensitive yet intelligent conscience, a simple 
yet courageous faith, diligence in seeking the truth, wisdom to dis- 
cern and walk in the right way, made his life a bright, cheerful and 
increasingly helpful force to all who knew him. And to know him 
was to love him. He had the confidence of his church. He served 
long and well as Trustee in her schools — Greensboro, Trinity, Mur- 
freesboro, and Littleton Colleges. He was chosen also a member of 
committees and commissions when delicate and difficult work was to 
be done. He was a member of one or more sessions of the General 
Conference, the lawmaking body of his church. He did his best at 
every point where he was called to serve. He was a good preacher; 
sound in doctrine, clear in statement, choice in language, instructive 
in matter and illustration, and on some occasions with great spiritual 
unction and power ; the multitudes were moved to nobler purposes 
and holy lives through the power of the truths proclaimed. Who 
that heard his last sermon in Carthage on the last day of the old year 
can ever forget it? His personal piety was sweet, unostentatious, 
comforting, and often joyous. It was a keeping power which no 
troubles, or labors, or afflictions seemingly seriouslj' affected. There 
was wonderful uniformity in spirit and life. He was ready when the 
end came, and went into a larger realm of communion with Him who 
loved and gave himself for him. 

He was twice married. The first time to Miss Martha Fletcher, of 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 43 



his native county, who bore him a son and a daughter. Like Rachel 
in the home of Jacob, she was soon torn away from him. In due time 
he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Jackson, of Carthage, who 
shared for thirty-eight years his toils, sorrows and joys, and con- 
tributed her full share to his successful life. How he loved his Mary! 
She bore him two sons and two daughters. She and all his children 
survive him and deeply lament his death. What a legacy he has left 
them in his beautiful life and triumphant death! May they follow 
him as he followed Christ, until they see him again in glory forever.

MEMOIR OF REV. DAVID R. RRUTON. 

David Rasbury Bruton, youngest son of James and Diana Bruton, 
was born in Montgomery County, N. C, December 23, 1829, and died 
at Wilson, N. C, March 27, 1894. 

Early in life he gave his heart to God and connected himself with 
the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. Soon afterward he gave 
himself to the work of the Methodist ministry. 

In 1857, after his graduation at Trinity (then Normal) College, he 
applied for admission on trial into the North Carolina Conference, 
holding its session in the town of Goldsboro. At this Conference he 
was appointed to the Presidency of the Raleigh Female Seminary. 
His ministerial life was a long and honorable one, as can be seen from 
the following list of appointments served by him : 

i857-'59, Raleigh Female Seminary. 

i859-'6r, Wentworth Circuit. 

i86i-'63, Madison Circuit.

44 NORTH CAROLINA ANNITAL CONFERENCE. 



In 1858 he was married to Margaret G. Nixon, who died in 1865, 
leaving two children, w^ho are now living — Col. John F. Rruton, of 
Wilson, N. C, and Miss Ella S. Bruton, of Weslyan Female Institute. 

In 1869 he was married to Virginia Mauney, who died in 1889. 
The fruit of this union was four children, three of whom survive 
him — Mrs. E. W. Burt, Helen and David Bruton. 

Brother Bruton's ministry was a long and honorable one, covering 
more than one-third of a century. As circuit rider, stationed pastor, 
presiding elder and college president he ran almost the whole gamut 
of ministerial experience. This fact shows the worth and influence 
of the man in his day and generation. He was, in fact, one of our 
most useful and influential men. In his prime he did much to impress 
his character upon the important plans and enterprises of North 
Carolina Methodism. His mind was acute, his thought clear and 
striking — he was a man of true culture. This culture was manifested 
in his general bearing and preaching power. It can be truthfully 
said that as a preacher he was above the ordinary. His preaching 
was characterized by strength rather than brilliancy. Yet at times 
he was both brilliant and strong. A minister of the North Carolina 
Conference who is not given to the utterance of fulsome compliment 
remarked to the reader, in substance, that some of the sermons 
preached by Brother Bruton the preceding summer in Catawba County 
were powerful in the extreme. He was especially pointed and power- 
ful in the denunciation of sin. Bro. Bruton's most popular work was 
done, perhaps, when he was pastor at Concord Station and Presiding 
Elder of the Salisbury District; yet his best work, I have no doubt, 
was done in the country, away from the noisy towns, where he met 
large congregations hungry for the bread of life; where he could 
inhale the sweet breath of the hills and hear the voice of Nature 
echoed in the song of bird and moan of forest. Here he seemed to 
get nearer to God, and preached with melting tenderness and apos- 
tolic zeal. His preaching was truly evangelical, and through the 
Holy Spirit brought many wanderers into the fold. 

Perhaps the richest tribute is paid to his character when it is said 
that he was a man of heart. We have not many of whom this can 
be said. The learned author of the " Tongue of Fire " has said with 
beauty and force, " The heart commands the man. Give me a heart 
and you give me a man." According to this, Brother Bruton was a 
■man — a man such as we need and such as God loves. He had a 
heart tender and true, pure and Christ-like. This tender part of his 
nature made him a loving husband and father, and riveted to him the 
deepest affections of his famil}'. It made him a welcomed one in the 
social circle. It enlisted the affections of the poor and unfortunate. 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 45 



It made him the special frieud of youug men. No young preacher 
had any fear in preaching to a congregation in which Brother Bruton 
sat. The benignant sympathetic look, the hearty amen, bade every 
timid fear begone. There are in North Carolina to-day numbers of men, 
prominent in church and State, who, to a great extent, owe what 
they are to the interest Brother Bruton showed in them when they 
were young men. 

Brother Bruton never altogether ceased from preaching. He did 
much effective work in the superannuated relation. It is a cheering 
thought that on the Sabbath preceding his death — that bleak, wintry- 
Sabbath, when nature seemed disorganized, distracted — this man of 
God stood in the pulpit at Fremont and told the "old, old story of 
Jesus and His love." 

As he grew older his spiritual experience grew richer. He enjoyed 
with increasing relish the presence of his Master. Though worn 
down with disease and harassed by misfortune his spirit never mur- 
mured and his faith never weakened. In one of the last letters 
written to his son, Col. J. F. Bruton, he said, "I have placed my 
hand in His, and although everything appears dark I am trusting 
implicitly." No one could doubt that Brother Bruton enjoyed his 
religion. He returned from Fremont March 26. Before retiring on 
Monday night his conversation was about Jesus. He was ripening 
for Heaven. Though the wheat had been beaten and torn in many 
a storm, yet the golden color deepened in the harvest days, and it 
was a rich sheaf that the angels bore awaj- in the twilight of that 
Tuesday morning. On the following Wednesday afternoon we laid 
his bod}' down in quiet Maplewood Cemetery. Many friends followed 
his body to the grave. 

Another one of the "Old Guard" of the Conference has passed 
away. Only a few are left. David Rasbury Bruton, with unstained 
shield and unrusted sword, has answered his Captain's call. What a 
rich legacy descends to every younger soldier in the memory of the 
old soldier and hero ! " Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord." 

" Thus, though ofl depressed and lonely, 
All my fears are laid aside ; 
If I but remember only 
Such as these have lived and died."

46 NORTH CAROLIxVA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



[Document No. 9.] 
MEMOIR OF REV. F. L. REID, D. D. 

Rev. Frank Lewis Reid, D. D., was born in Rockingham County, 
N. C, i6th of June, 1851, and died in Greensboro, N. C, September 
24, 1894, in the forty-fourth year of his age. He was the son of 
Rev. N. F. Reid, D. D., and the grandson of Rev. James Reid, whose 
names are illustrious in the annals of North Carolina Methodism. 
While yet young in years be entered school at Trinity College, and 
at the age of nineteen graduated from that institution. In young 
manhood's beginning he laid his heart upon God's altar and became 
a member of the church of his fathers. He soon became impressed 
that he was divinely called to the work of the ministry, and for some 
months was much exercised on this subject. He did not hastily enter 
the work, but pondered well the solemn responsibilities of the sacred 
calling, and it was not until he was thoroughly convinced of his call 
that he consented to enter the work. Having once settled the matter 
he obeyed the call with all his heart, and gave himself full)' to the 
work of the itinerant ministrj'. 

He was received on trial into the North Carolina Conference in 
Greensboro, N. C, in the year 1870 and was sent to the Madison 
Circuit, where he remained three years. During his pastorate there 
his labors were greatly blessed. All around the circuit the revival 
fires burned and glowed, and the people flocked to hear the young 
and gifted preacher. He threw his whole soul into the work as he 
preached and talked and labored, and many were the souls born to 
God under his ministry " amid the hills of Dan.." 

It was during his pastorate on the Madison Circuit that he was hap- 
pily married on June 3, 1873. to Miss Minnie E. Cardwell, of Rock- 
ingham County, who, through all the years of his life thereafter, 
with a beautiful devotion, shared his joys and sorrows. From this 
marriage were born four children, all of whom, with his wife, three 
brothers and three sisters, survive him. I have never seen a man 
who loved his family with a tenderer and more considerate affection 
than did our dear departed brother. 

At the Conference of 1873 Dr. Reid was appointed to Louisburg 
Station, which charge he served for four j'ears with distinguished 
success. While here, in addition to the work of the pastorate, he 
was called to the Presidency of Louisburg Female College, which 
position he filled with fidelity and ability until he resigned in 1878. 
It was about this time that Dr. Reid, on account of failing health and 
a chronic throat affection, was compelled to desist from regular

]>reachiiig. This was a great cross to him. He was sorely chastened. 
Rut with the humility and trust of a little child he meekly accepted 
his affliction, and committed himself into the Heavenly Father's 
hand, and waited for the divine providence to open up a way for him 
to labor in the vineyard of his Lord. That way was in due time 
opened when he and Rev. W. S. Black, D.- D., became editors and 
proprietors of the Raleii^Ji C/iiislia?i Advocate. Having bought Dr. 
Black's interest, December, 1884, he remained sole owner and man- 
ager and the editor-in-chief of the Advocate. From the time he 
entered upon his labors as editor until he resigned to prosecute the 
work in which he died his labors and Eeal knew no abatement. A 
large portion of the time he did the work of two men, and amid 
bodily weakness and labors abundant and frequent discouragements 
he toiled on uncomplainingly through the years, almost giving his 
life for the work that lay so near his heart. His efforts were largely 
V)lessed, and he was permitted to see the work to which he felt provi- 
dentially called prosper in his hands. No one can estimate how great 
a blessing Dr. Reid has been to North Carolina Methodism through 
the weekly visits of the Advocate. 

While engaged in his arduous work as editor he served the church 
and his generation in various other departments of labor. Owing to 
his fine business tact and skill he was at different times called to give 
the benefit of his valuable labors in important and responsible civil 
positions, and whenever and wherever he served he showed himself 
a man of affairs, and won the admiration of all concerned as a faith- 
ful and efficient public servant. Upon the death of Rev. A. A. 
Boshamer, in October, 1S81, he was appointed to succeed him as 
pastor of Edenton Street Church, in Raleigh, where the name of Dr. 
Reid continues unto this day as an ointment poured forth. He was 
appointed Presiding Elder of the Raleigh District upon the death of 
Rev. N. H. D. Wilson, D. D., in May, 1888, and it was on account of 
overwork in this extra charge that he came near dying during the 
same j-ear. 

He received the degree of A. B. at Trinit)' College in 1870, and of 
the same college in 1873 the degree of A. M., and the honorary degree 
of D. D. was conferred upon him by the University of North Caro- 
lina in 1890. In May, 1890, he was a delegate to the General Confer- 
ence of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, held at St. Louis, 
and he was also a delegate to the Ecumenical Conference held at 
Washington, D. C, October, 1891. 

Towards the middle of the year 1893 a new sphere of usefulness 
seemed to open up to him when he was urgently called to the Presi- 
dency of Greensboro Female College. Exercising his usual caution 



48 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



he did not hastily accept the call, but after much prayer and counsel 
with his brethren he decided to accept the position, and immediately 
entered upon his new and responsible work with the same energy 
and enthusiasm and skill that had characterized him in every sphere 
of duty in which he had ever served. The universal acclamation was 
that he was pre-eminently the man for the place; and with his heart 
all aglow with zeal for the prosperity of Greensboro Female College 
and for the cause of Christian education in general, and especially in 
the families of his own beloved Methodism in North Carolina, he 
began a vigorous campaign, which had already begun to wake up the 
people on the subject of Christian and denominational education. 
With convincing logic, earnest persuasion and burning eloquence he 
pressed his theme and won his way to the hearts of his hearers, and 
wherever his voice was heard converts were won to the cause he 
espoused. Under his successful leadership Greensboro Female Col- 
lege fast rose to an era of prosperity that has gladdened the hearts of 
its friends throughout the State. The results of his plans and labors, 
in the improvements in the building, increased patronage and general 
confidence in the character and success of the institution, evidence 
the wisdom of the Directors in placing him in this delicate and respon- 
sible position, which he served so well. His work for Greensboro 
Female College will abide while he sweetly rests. 

He was devotedly attached to Trinity College— his Ahna 3Iater — 
and labored every wa\-, as trustee and friend, to advance its interests. 
At the request of the trustees he raised several thousand dollars to 
equip the new buildings at Durham. He was a member of the Board 
of Trustees until the last session of the North Carolina Conference. 
Few men have done so much valuable work in sp short a time as he. 

He has been suddenly called from labor to rest, but he was found 
standing bravely at his post and ready for the summons. 

North Carolina Methodism mourns for her distinguished son. It 
is hard for us to realize that we shall never hear his voice again, nor 
again see the light kindle in his eye; and while we bow our hearts in 
chastened sorrow and reverent submission to the high and holy one, 
we thank God for the noble, manly. Christian life of Frank L. Reid; 
for his career of usefulness, and the works that do follow him. 

Farewell, faithful comrade, brother, friend! By the grace of God 
we will meet thee again, and walk and talk with thee amid the hills 
of light. W. C. Norman.

[Document No. ic] 
MEMOIR OF THE REV. JOSEPH HALSTEAD WHEELER. 

The Rev. Joseph Halstead Wheeler, an honored superannuated 
member of this Conference, fell asleep in Christ at the home of his 
son-in-law, Major Hall T. McGee, in the city of Charleston, S. C, on 
the 27th of November, 1894, at the ripe age of eighty-five years. 

By birth he was a native of the State of New Jersey, having been 
born in the City of Newark in 1810. He removed to Charleston, 
S. C, when a boy of fourteen years of age, and was ever afterwards 
devoted to all the interests that made for the happiness of his adopted 
State. At the age of twenty-three, while residing in Camden, he felt 
called of God to the work of the ministry; and although at the time 
successfully engaged in worldly business, he gave it all up to engage 
in the work of leading men to Christ, and the people of God to the 
land of which the Lord hath said, " I will give it unto thee." 

He joined the South Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episco- 
pal Church in 1834, and for seventeen years was an active, zealous 
member of that Conference. As a young man, he was said to have 
been pure in thought, careful of his words, and of spotless integrity 
of character. His zeal for God and the church found expression in 
a somewhat stereotyped phrase, which father Wheeler was known to 
use throughout his whole life, "If the religion of Christ is true at 
all, it is tremendously true "; and his life was a glad acknowledgment 
of this fact. 

In 1851, a portion of the territory lying within the bounds of North 
Carolina and belonging to the South Carolina Conference was trans- 
ferred to the North Carolina Conference; and Bro. Wheeler, being 
stationed in Fayetteville at the time, came with the territory. He 
was returned the next year to Fayetteville, and he told this writer a 
few years since that such was the wounded feeling of a large part of 
the church, on account of the transfer, that his second reception as 
their pastor was not marked with any special manifestations of gra- 
ciousness. But this writer, although quite a young man at the time, 
remembers that the saintly character of Bro. Wheeler, his sweet spirit 
and Christ-like devotion to his work, went far towards mollifying 
the wound, and winning back the church to a higher plane of spirit 
and life. • 

It would unnecessarily occupy space to catalogue the appointments 
of Bro. Wheeler, even if we had the Minutes from which to gather 
these. SufiBce it to say, that before his transfer he filled such stations 
as Columbia and Spartanburg, and was for many years the Secretary 

4 



50 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



of the South Carolina Conference. In our own Conference he filled 
such places as Fayetteville, Raleigh, Wilmington, Wadesboro, Beau- 
fort, and many others. 

This writer had the honor and profit of being Bro. Wheeler's Pre- 
siding Elder for four years, and had his help while both were stationed 
in Raleigh, and he can truly saj' that he has never been associated 
with a more saintly character than that of Bro. Wheeler. He was 
meek and lowly in heart, and had no self-seeking or worldly ambi- 
tion. He was a Methodist from principle, and in love and faith 
l)reached the doctrines of his church. He was too wise to suppose 
that a mere moral reformation, however sincere, could take the place 
of a heartfelt conversion to God and witness of the Spirit, or that a 
life hid with Christ in God could be substituted by a mere humauita- 
rianism. He literally hid behind the cross while he went about doing- 
good. The cross of Christ was the great central truth of his preach- 
ing, and he held it up as the only leverage that could lift a soul from 
sin and death to heaven and God. 

In 1883 he was placed in that honored rank of retired field marshals 
of the army of the living God, the superannuated preachers. He 
made his home in Charleston, S. C, with his daughter Anna, the wife 
of Major Hall T. McGee. His ministrations were most acceptable to 
the people of God amongst the different churches in Charleston; and 
when too feeble to preach, took his seat within the chancel, where 
even his presence was a benediction. 

He had three sons in the ministry, two of whom, Joseph and Wil- 
liam, preceded him to the better laud; the other^ James W., is a mem- 
ber of the Western North Carolina Conference. He had only two 
daughters, the one mentioned above, and Hattie N. ; the latter, together 
with two other sons, Warren and Charles, are also waiting to greet 
their beloved father upon the eternal shore. The living have a goodly 
heritage in their father's teaching and godly example; and in the 
hour [of trouble and disappointment and tears can solace their 
aching hearts with the recollection that their glorified father's name 
was without a single stain, and that when life's fitful fever is over 
they may meet him where the inhabitants never say I am sick, and 
where thej' never grow old. 

It would not be difficult for a master to give a mental analysis of 
Bro. Wheeler. He was philosophical rather than logical; and this, 
combined with the poetic and emotional, made his preaching pathetic. 
He scarcely ever failed to move at least some in his audience to tears. 
To this ma)' be added the Scripturalness of his propositions, while 
the copious quotations which he made from the Sacred Record, made 
him eminently a gospel preacher. His style was plain and perspicu- 



JOURNAL OF PROCEEDINGS. 5 1 



ous. There was nothing showy or meretricious in his delivery, and 
he impressed everj- hearer witli the important fact that the preacher 
was intensel}' in earnest. His religious thought in the sphere of the 
experimental had a wide range. He fairly glowed with a conscious- 
ness of pardon and regeneration through the blood of the Lord Jesus, 
anil as he ascended in experience the religious horizon widened, 
while the altitude made it possible for his spiritual ladder to touch 
heaven, while ministering angels assisted him to sing his favorite 
hymn : 

" O glorious hope of perfect love ! 
It lifts nie up to things above ; 

It bears on eagle's wings ; 
It gives my ravished soul a taste, 
And makes me for some moments feast, 

With Jesus' priests and kings." 

Brother Wheeler was pious without any of the meretriciousness of 
pietism, and was remarkably free from any pharisaic sanctimonious- 
ness. None knew him but to love him, and his unimpeachable char- 
acter inspired universal confidence. The Conference was much 
stirred when his death was announced upon the Conference floor. 
He has answered to the last roll-call on earth, and is already known 
by his new name in the company of the redeemed and sanctified. 
The righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance. 

I have left this space for the special mention of Brother Wheeler's 
sainted wife. He was happily married to Miss Anne Warren, of 
Camden, South Carolina, in 1831, and for fifty years she was truly 
his helpmeet. With a large family of children, mostly boys, she 
managed with economy and success, training her children in the fear 
of the Lord, and aiding her husband in his godly labors. And so 
marked was this that this writer heard a lady on one occasion remark, 
that "Surely the Lord kept house for sister Wheeler. " She was 
eminently qualified by nature and grace to be the wife of a minister 
of the gospel. " Her children rise up and call her blessed — her hus- 
band, and he praiseth her." The queen of a God-given empire — the 
famil}' home— her scepter was wisdom and righteousness, and she 
contributed a godly woman's share towards making a heaven for 
humanity. She preceded her husband to the glory-land about thir- 
teen years, dying in Hillsboro, N. C, in 1881. Only God can know 
how to reward such a woman. Her toils and cares, her self-sacrifice 
and sorrows, her struggles and triumphs were not out on the showy 
arena of life, where worldly honors often crown the victor, but in the 
home and the church, to which field God had specially called and 



52 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 



gloriously endowed her. When she died, earth was made poorer and 
heaven richer. 

Owing to a paralysis of the throat Brother Wheeler, during his 
last days, could speak but little, and scarcely enough to be under- 
stood by the loved ones who knew him best and loved him most. But 
last words are not necessary from one whose whole life was a constant 
triumph; and though dead, he yet speaketh. 

His death stirred the sympathy and sorrow of a very large part of 
the city of Charleston, and an unusually long procession of mourn- 
ers followed his remains to their last resting-place in the city of the 
dead. We shall no more hear his voice in prayer as he talked with 
God, and no more shall we be blessed with his fatherly presence. He 
walked with God, and is not, for God hath taken him. May his 
mantle ever abide upon the body of this Conference. 

" Servant of God, well doue !" 
" Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints."

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON BOOKS AND PERIODICALS. 

/. Ou> Publishing House. 

Your committee desires to give emphasis to the importance of a pure 
literature in the homes of our people. We feel called upon to say that 
we believe there are many homes in our church that are not wisely 
guarded in reference to the books and papers that enter into them. 

A great deal of unwholesome and pernicious literature finds circula- 
tion among us. This ought not so to be. We believe that a warning voice 
should be lifted up and that our people should be called to consider the 
danger that will come to our faith aud morals if we are not more guarded 
in the class of literature that our people read. 

As a safeguard to our people, we therefore commend to them the 
books issued from our Publishing House as offering to them a literature 
both pure and strong and well suited to develop the religious and intel- 
lectual life of our church. We urge upon them to buy our own books, 
and thus seek to accumulate in every home in our church a library of • 
wholesome and edifying Methodist literature. 

//. The Nashville Christian Advocate. 

We recognize in the Nashville Christian Advocate a religious journal 
of the very highest order. It is a paper of which every Southern Meth- 
odist may justly feel proud. Under the editorial control of Dr. Hoss, it 
has grown to a journal of commanding dignity and of very lofty char- 
acter, equal, we believe, to the best published in all the borders of our 
great country. It stands for the truth and for the polity of our Method- 
ism. We commend it most heartily to all our people. 

///. The Southern Methodist Reviezv. 

This periodical is ably edited by Dr. Tygert, and takes rank among our 
best religious quarterlies. It furnishes a real need in the higher litera- 
ture of our church, and should be taken by our ministers and laymen 
who read this class of literature. 

IV. The Methodist Revieiv of Missions. 

This is a publication greatly essential to the mission cause of our 
church. As now edited, we believe it will quicken the mission life of 
our church wherever it circulates. It is full of missionary intelligence 
and of missionary enterprise. It would greatly help our cause to have 
its circulation become general throughout our borders. 

V. The North Carolina Christiati Advocate. 

(i). We heartily endorse the action of the Commission appointed at 
our last Conference for the consolidation of the Methodist papers of our 
State. 

(2). We reaffirm most positively our allegiance to the North Carolina 



54 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCE. 

Christian Advocate as the organ of our Conference, and earnestly urge 
all our preachers to exerl themselves to enlarge the subscription list and 
to put a copy of the paper into every Methodist home in the vState. 

(3). We request the presiding Bishop to appoint Rev. W. L. Grissom 
one of the editors of the paper. 

(4). We recommend that J. N. Cole, R. B. John, W. C. Norman, W . 
H. Branson and J. G. Brown be appointed a committee to confer with 
the Advocate Publishing Company in the selection of one of the editors 
of the paper, whose name shall be submitted to the next annual Con- 
ference for ratification, aud thereafter at each succeeding annual Con- 
ference. 

(5). We welcome Rev. H. M. Blair on the editorial staff of the paper, 
and commend him most heartily to all our people. 

(6). We express our sincere and high appreciation of the work of Rev. 
Dan Atkins, D. D., late editor of the paper. He has wrought well for 
our cause, and leaves the editorial chair bearing with him a very high 
degree of the esteem of this Conference. 
Respectfully submitted, 

John N. Cole, Chairman. 

J. A. Lee, Secretary.

The B3ard adopted the following, and presents them to the Confer-

58 NORTH CAROLINA ANNUAL CONFERENCK. 

1st. The third Sabbath in each mouth, wherever practicable, shall be 
Missionary Day in all our Sabbath Schools, and the collection that day 
given to missions. 

2d. Our Secretary shall, as far as the means at his command permit, 
furnish missionary literature and appropriate exercises for these monthly 
meetings; also Dike Builders, Pyramids or other forms of the mite boxes 
for the children to secure contributions throughout the congregations. 

3d. The third Sabbath in the month of March, and whatever third 
Sabbath immediately precedes the District Conference in each District, 
and the third Sabbath in November shall be designated as the times, 
whenever practicable, for holding special missionary meetings in the 
Sabbath Schools and congregations. On such occasions unusual atten- 
tion shall be given and unusual effort made to impress our congrega- 
tions with the importance of missions. Whatever collections and offer- 
ings are in hand or shall be secured on these occasions, shall be remit- 
ted to the Conference Treasurer as soon as practicable thereafter. 

4th. The names and addresses of all Superintendents of Sunday 
Schools shall be furnished the Secretary of this Board by the pastors 
and Presiding Elders. 

5th. Notices for the carrying out of these plans shall be kept con- 
stantly standing in the North Carolina Christian Advocate, and also a 
plan for organizing Sunday Schools into Missionary Societies. Extra 
copies of these notices and plans shall be kept on hand for distribution 
by our Secretary. 

6th. The Presiding Elders of the several Districts, the members of the 
Board of Missions and the pastors of our Station charges, together with 
prominent laymen in each District, and any of the other pastors whose 
time can be secured without detriment to their Circuit work, are desig- 
nated as persons to be called on to assist the pastor and people in these 
special missionary meetings. 

7th. We heartily recommend The Methodist Review of Missions, the 
little monthly, "The World for Christ,'' and our other missionary pub- 
lications to our preachers and people. We suggest that each pastor 
secure our catalogue of missionary publications, examine it carefully 
and supply himself and people from time to time with such as will do 
most good. 

Sth. We recommend that the week from loth to 17th March be 
observed as " do-without- week," and it will thus correspond with our 
first special missionary occasion as provided for in section three above. 

9th. Our pastors are requested to take the Foreign Missionary collec- 
tion by March 20th, and the Domestic Missionary collection by June ist, 
provided that any pastor may take both collections together. They are 
urged, if possible, to secure the full amounts of both by the meeting of 
the District Conferences.
